About us

FuturEnergy Ireland is a joint venture company owned on a 50:50 basis by Coillte and ESB that launched in November 2021.

By combining the assets and expertise of these two leading commercial semi-state companies, FuturEnergy Ireland is strongly positioned to tackle climate change and improve energy security on behalf of the people of Ireland. Coillte and ESB have a long history of working with communities to develop renewable energy including Raheenleagh Wind Farm in Co. Wicklow and Castlepook Wind Farm in Co. Cork.

Our ambition is to develop more than 1GW of renewable energy capacity by 2030 and make a significant contribution to Ireland’s commitment to produce 80% of electricity from renewable sources by the end of the decade.

Ørsted develops, constructs and operates wind farms, solar farms, energy storage facilities and bioenergy plants, and provides energy products to its customers. Ørsted ranks as the world's most sustainable energy company in Corporate Knights' 2021 index of the Global 100 most sustainable corporations in the world and is recognised on the CDP Climate Change A List as a global leader on climate action.

In Ireland, Ørsted owns and operates a portfolio of onshore wind farms with a combined capacity of more than 360 MW. Our ambition is to increase this by more than 600 MW in the coming decade.

Site study area

The area which is being studied for suitability as a potential wind farm site is located near Ballinagree, between Millstreet and Macroom in Co. Cork.
